Hi Guys.

I really hope someone can help me. I'm kind of a newbie at this so please excuse if I don't use the correct terminology or something.

My Dad's Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has been rooted a few months ago and everything worked completely fine. Then about 2 months ago, it restarted randomly. (This was entirely random) Then something went wrong and the device would not boot at all.

It's a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000

So I tried flashing it with the factory firmware with no luck. (after this the white noise/static screen appeared)

I sent it in for repairs and they said it was a faulty battery and overcharged me to repair it. So I rejected their quotation and replaced the battery myself for a quarter of the price.

Unfortunately this did not fix the problem.

When turned on it shows a white noise screen(I hope that makes sense) and then shows the samsung logo after a few seconds. It will then restart and continue this cycle until I disconnect the battery or it runs out of power.

I'm almost completely certain that it is a software related issue. I'm thinking the firmware got corrupted somehow.

Can someone please refer me to a guide to completely flash the device so that there is no firmware on the device at all, and then flash it with either a custom firmware or the original samsung firmware.

Or if you guys know of an alternative fix please let me know!

PS. I can access the recovery mode (pressing the power & volume button).

I have uploaded a video to youtube showing exactly what it does.

Use Odin to reflash the latest firmware for the device, then boot into recovery and do a factory reset to wipe cash, data and dalvik. It should boot after that if it is a software issue.

Unhappy N8000 loop
Hi everybody!
I've got the same problem. I installed a 4.4.2 rom a couple of months ago. Everything got well, no problems, no loop, no random restart.
Suddenly, while I was NOT using the tablet, it started to reboot.
I tried everything but I can only access in download mode.
With Odin it writes than was not possible to complete write.
What can I do?
Please, help me if you have any idea!
Thanks

Alberto
